LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) — Firefighters were called to a fire at West Third Street and Newtown Pike early Monday morning, which displaced three people.

They say the first floor houses a business and there are three apartments on the second floor.
Firefighters evacuated the building and they said all three adults in the building made it out safely.
They say there wasn’t actually that much fire, just a large amount of smoke.
